The driver then failed to stop when the officer activated his lights and siren and he proceeded Southbound Buena Vista until he pulled up over the curb just north of Clark Street . The driver, who failed a field sobriety test, was taken to Providence St. Joseph Medial Center for an additional test prior to being arrested.

The driver had been cited recently by another Burbank Police Officer for DUI.

The damage was minor to both vehicles, and neither sustained injuries that required medical attention at the time.
